India & Russia deal: Russian President Vladimir Putin is arriving in India on a one-day visit on 6 December. During this, the first two-plus-two talks between the 2 countries will take place. In this, the Foreign and the Defense Ministers of both the countries will hold talks. China and Pakistan seem very queasy by Putin’s visit to India. The justification for this is also reasonable. Media reports are contending that India can negotiate Super Advanced Missile Defense System S-500 or S-500 SAM from Russia. It is even more harmful than the S-400 missile defense, the release of which has commenced to India. Let us comprehend this matter.
India & Russia deal, India will soon have an S-400 defense system:
India signed a contract to buy the S-400 missile defense system from Russia in 2018. It is meant to be the world’s most advanced missile defense system. Apart from Russia, only Turkey and china have this system. The special part is that America is feverish over the S-400 deal between India and Russia.
America committed many kinds of sanctions on Turkey, but he could not impose any kind of pressure against India. The reason for this is that it requires India to keep China under control and it cannot take the threat of outraging India. China had also conflicted with India getting the S-400. But, Russia had made it apparent that India and Russia have a 70-year-old service relationship, so they will provide S-400 to India.
If Putin and Modi agree on the S-500 super-advanced missile defense system, then be confident that India will get along the rim over Pakistan and China. This is the explanation why these 2 neighboring enemies of India are scared. For the time being, India and Russia are abstaining from speaking anything on this topic. The foreign or defense ministries of both nations did not even deem it suitable to mention it. During the S-400 deal, 3 years ago, even both countries had the same belief.
One more thing, if there is an agreement on India & Russia deal for S-500, then India will be the only foreign country to get this defense system. It is also valid that India will put a condition in front of Russia that it should not provide this S-500 defense system to China. Pakistan can’t even purchase it.
This issue is being hurled in the Pakistani media for many days, discussions are taking place on TV channels. Due to media censorship in China, nothing can leak like this.
UKRAINE AND RUSSIA DISPUTE: COUNTRIES ON THE VERGE OF WAR? KNOW WHAT IS THE DECADES-OLD CONTROVERSY?
The US was compelled to impose sanctions on the S-400. So far no conclusion has been taken on this. The question is, will he keep calm even on the S-500? Is he not familiar with the khichdi being cooked between India and Russia? Will he let this agreement go on? Will this deal not break the connections between China and Russia? Wouldn’t this deal open a new way for the arms race in Asia? The explanations for these issues are in the pit of time. Let’s see what comes to pass in this India & Russia deal.
